    No wireless detection on Dell Inspiron E1405

    Hello,

    I just installed Ubuntu on an older machine, and there are no wireless networks being detected.

    I believe that I have installed the proper drivers. Further, when I run
    Code:
    iwconfig
    , I get the following output:

    Code:
    lo        no wireless extensions.
    
    eth0      no wireless extensions.
    
    ppp0      no wireless extensions.
    There is no wlan0. What should I do?

    Thank you.

    Thanks for the reply...

    I actually got it working by installing the drivers via a wired connection and rebooting. Before, I was using a wireless usb card. I am not sure why the new method worked, but it did.

    Thanks again for the help.
